Each year, St. Mary's parishioners offer to help share the Christmas spirit of generosity and giving with others in our parish community. Last year we helped provide clothing, educational toys, spiritual items, and love with 17 families within our parish community. We are getting ready to start the planning process for the 2011 Adopt a Family program. If you are interested in helping please contact either Jen Groves or Pamela Schaal (formerly Mortimer) at 614-323-5816 or Volunteer opportunities may include assembling gift ornaments, decorating the gift tree and sorting gifts. This is a great family friendly activity during the holiday season.
